UF Sonny's Social 4/20/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

For the UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta's social, our Social Chair Kaylie planned a dinner at Sonny's for some southern food. Members crowded around tables talking each other and welcoming the newest of members that joined us. The dinner allowed members the opportunity to catch up on what happened over the year, see what people have planned for next year or after graduation, and catch up with those we haven't seen in a while due to classes. At the restaurant, everyone paid for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends talking about the memories they have had through AZ and what lies ahead.

UF Operation Catnip Service 4/15/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter participated in the monthly Operation Catnip (OC) spay/neuter clinic. OC provides free spay/neuter, vaccines, and treatment for parasites to community cats from Alachua County, FL at no charge to the caregivers. Since 1998, OC has fixed over 31,000 cats. At monthly "spay days" over 200 cats are fixed in just hours thanks to a team of volunteers and the space for the clinic is donated by the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. Volunteers are assigned to a variety of tasks from check in to surgery preparation and recovery. This unique program gave our members an opportunity to gain some hands on experience in veterinary medicine. With many of our members pursuing medical degrees it gave them the chance to work first hand.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter participated or volunteered at the first annual FOG Jog. The Florida Organic Growers put on the 5K Run/Walk to help raise funds. The event was a fun and healthy way for members to help raise funds for Florida Organic Growers (FOG), a local non-profit which supports and promotes organic, sustainable agriculture and nutritional food in our community. It was a blast for members to help support the local community and give back while keeping healthy.

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 4/12/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class held a fundraiser at Red Mango from 8-11 PM where they receive a certain percentage of the profits from those hours. Members and pledges came out after classes and studying to meet up with each other and get some delicious frozen yogurt that could be topped with numerous things including fresh fruit. The fundraiser gave the pledge class an opportunity to offset some of the fees associated with pledging like dues and national fees. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating frozen yogurt!...

UF Applebee's Fundraiser 4/11/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter went to enjoy the food from Applebee's but unlike our normal Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser where we cook we were just there to enjoy the food and company of each other. Anytime on the 11th members and friends could come in and present a flyer to their server and a portion of the sales made would be donated to our chapter. Members and pledges met up for lunch or dinner with each other and took the time to just relax and catch up since a large group of us were graduating in less than a month. It gave us time to reminisce about the fun times we had in AZ and at UF. The fundraiser gave the chapter an opportunity to offset some of the costs associated with our events over the course of the year.

UF Pledge Class Potluck and Big/Little Reveal 4/10/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

It's that time of year again... potluck time!!! Potluck is a tradition in the Florida Chapter where the pledges put on a themed dinner for the members. Our pledges planned it and came up with a theme of Around the World. Pledges cooked up an entire buffet table of food and desserts for the members to feast on from all around the world. This year potluck was paired up with our big/little reveal where members and pledges dressed up as character pairs such as Pebbles and Bam-Bam, Marlin and Dori, and so many more. The potluck benefits both members and pledges by giving us an opportunity to socialize and get to know each other better...

UF Pledge Class Pet Food/Toy Collection Service 4/7/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class put together a pet food and toys drive for the Humane Society in Gainesville. The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that strives to eliminate euthanasia of healthy, treatable cats and dogs in the area where they work quickly to find them new homes. All services they provide are made possible by volunteers and donations such as ours. A few of the pledges were able to deliver the bags of food and toys to help the dogs and cats in need. The members and pledges were able to give just a little which can make a huge difference in the lives of these animals in the community around us.

Members of the Florida Chapter's pledge class met up with members and tons of other students and alumni from UF in a spring football tradition, the Orange and Blue game. The game is a scrimmage of the football team's offensive and defensive lines at the end of their spring practice session. They decided to go and take part in another tradition as students. In the group there were some crazy orange and blue covered fans ready to cheer on their team as they watched what was to become the team for fall...
